A growing city of about 12,000 residents, in New Hampshire, littered with crooked cops, crooked doctors, drug dealers, STD's, and a Walmart.
My brothers case got thrown out when the cop got busted for fabricating evidence, that's so Claremont.

A suburb located in eastern Los Angeles County. Home of the prestigious Claremont Colleges. 12 square miles of AWESOMENESS. Not to be confused with Clairemont, which is in San Diego.
Dude, stop trying to pretend you're from Claremont.

Claremont- Loud, with a capital L.they are loveable and kinda weird and random. the woman more so than then men. Female Claremonts are often smart, witty, good looking and very creative. whereas male claremonts are sporty and er annoying.

one of the most elitist city in southern california, where it is illegal for people to park their cars in front of their house at night, a place with too many police that have nothing to do but camouflages in the bushes waiting for speed drivers, a place where people think highly of themselves, a very left wing politics city (except north claremont), a place where mostly doctors, corporate executives, professors, and lawyers live, a place where 99% of the streets are set at speed limit of 25mph, a place where people cannot find fast food restaurants because its too rich for that, a place with an artsy and electric downtown where you find rich snobby people driving their mercedes, bentleys, bmws, and ferraris on the weekends to show it off, a place where most of the restaurants are upscale and overpriced, a place with a lot of old money

a city that claims it is the "jewel" of southern california, unlike no others..
a city that is TOO EXPENSIVE to live in, average home price is 750k + .. with the mansions up north ranging from 1-15 million dollars
a city that residents make over 100k a year
a city that has the best school systems in the nation
k-12 and also the claremont colleges are nationally ranked at the top of the best.
a place that every street is a tree lined street

An extremely selective and prestigious liberal arts college in southern California. It is the thirteenth most selective college/ university in America. It has a 13% acceptance rate and is ranked 8th best liberal arts school in the nation. The students are stereotypically white, rich, smart, ambitious and many are athletic. The school's emphasis on leadership attracts proactive, pragmatic and well-spoken students. CMC's small size and relatively new creation makes it less well known than comparable schools. However, those who pay attention to collegiate rankings will know it.
"I met a Claremont McKenna student the other day."
"Yea, she's smart, ambitious and athletic!"
"Wow, good steal."

Also known as CMC.

"1. A second-tier liberal arts college."

--Well, I suppose if the 2nd tier starts at #10 nationwide according to US News & World Report, then I'm more than happy to be second-tier until the day I die! But honestly, who cares about rankings after high school? Once you hit college, it's all about who can get the most drunk before passing out.

"2. A college primarily attended by males who are sexual predators."

--And we still have the best-looking girls at the 5Cs. We're so good the chicks keep enrolling here, even if some of the guys have a rap sheet like Kobe's.

"3. A college with a campus resembling a motel."

--Which is exactly why North Quad is so damned fun! It's also because we try to keep our alcoholics in a more public place so that they don't drink alone all the time. I still do, but that's because of my unwavering dedication to self-improvement.

"4. A college obsessed with its inferiority to near-by rival institutions, a complex which often leads to meat-headed overcompensation by many students."

--You're confused. We arrived as meatheads, our dislike for the nearby rival institution being 100% independent thereof. You can have the #3 ranking because I don't give two shits, and when I'm drunk, in about two hours, I really won't give a shit.

"5. A college with an awesome and friendly exhibition chef."

--You're damn right.

CMC also has a pretty fierce rivalry with Pomona College, one of the schools adjacent to its campus, which might have become apparent by reading this entry.

CMCers are known to epitomize badassedness and exhibit extreme behavior, particularly in the realm of binge drinking. Fortunately, the term "binge drinking" was coined by paternalistic douchebags and is therefore a moot point. As far as I'm concerned, a bottle of whisky is perfectly normal for a Tuesday night.
